Inspired Interior | Palazzo Margherita

I'm feeling completely inspired by Francis Ford Coppola's Jacques Grange-designed Palazzo Margherita hotel.  Can you even imagine staying in any one of the rooms pictured above? Inspired by the Villa Favorita near Palermo, Italy, Grange completely restored this 19th-century residence giving it a younger, more modern summer feeling. The extreme attention to detail throughout the palazzo is astonishing. I literally love every last detail of this place -- from signature Grange zigzag floor to the elaborately painted Moorish ceiling -- it's perfection.  The  unique furnishings and antiques paired with the beautifully uphosltered Nailhead Sofas from Bunny William's BeeLine Home collection give the rooms a residential feel.  Infact, it seems that many of the furnishings used throughout the hotel are from BeeLine so you can easily replicate this look and feel at home using the pieces featured below and a spritz of Aqua di Parma...
